Genevan gets 10 years for taking ring

A Geneva man has been sentenced to 10 years in prison for forcibly taking a diamond ring from his girlfriend last July.

Ontario County Judge William Kocher handed down the sentence to Corwin Coleman on Thursday. In February, Coleman was convicted in a jury trial on felony counts of second-degree robbery, third-degree robbery and second-degree assault.

He was acquitted of the most serious charge he faced, first-degree robbery. That is a class B felony punishable by up to 25 years in prison.

Coleman, 48, was arrested by Geneva police last July. Assistant District Attorney Zachary Maurer, who prosecuted the case, said the charges stemmed from a “one-sided” domestic incident between Coleman and his girlfriend, with Coleman forcibly taking the ring from her during the altercation.
